This problem can start when you have a ram problem or the drive is about to crash.
take ram out & clean the golden edge both sides with rubbing alcohol or a pencil rubber.replace the ram
when you start the install again, do not use the partition that is on the drive now ,go for format and set up new partition,windows will check the hard drive for errors before it starts to install,

hope this helps you
good luck let me know how you go

This error can occur due to any of the following:

While instaling windowsxp i had a problem and gives a error code


Hello,

One of the files on the XP installation CD must be damaged or corrupted.
Try to restart the installation process again.
If it produces the same message, you might have to use another installation CD.

Thank you for using Fixya,
Kenneth.

How to solve pci.sys error during reformating of the hard drive


You have two ways to solve the problem of "Pci.sys Is Missing or Corrupt"
Error Message When You Start Windows.

1.Booting with WinXP CD to access the Recovery Console’s Repair option,
and then copy from WinXP CD the missing or damaged Pci.sys file to
Systemdrive:\Windows\System32\drivers folder , Exit and Reboot.

start the recovery console and type:
set AllowAllPaths = true
expand d:\i386\pci.sy_ c:\windows\system\drivers32 /y
If you don't type
set AllowAllPaths = true you can't access the windows folder.

2. Booting with WinXP CD and then perform a Windows XP Repair Reinstall
of the currently installed system.

If you need detailed assistance post with details of your Operating system
[WinXP Home vs WinXP Pro and the SP status i.e SP1 or SP2 ]

Dear guys, a few days ago i boght a used-notebook. GoBook ix250. and now i've problem with it. there had been windows xp sp 2 in it, but error frequently. I want to intall a new windows installation to...


I would try to error check the hard drive and also run a memory check to make sure it's not introduction errors. You'll need a floppy drive for the memory check and if the hard drive is over 30 gb, you'll have to hook it up to a desktop with an adapter as a slave to a winxp installation or, divide it into smaller 30 gb or less partitions, format with fat32 using a win98 startup disk and then scandisk each partition, checking for errors.

Try a Repair Install with your WinXP Bootable CD. If Repair option fails you will have to do a Clean Reinstall of WinXP as a last resort.
Some details:
1. Boot with your WinXP CD
2.At the "Welcome To Setup" screen, Choose the option:
To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER. DO NOT choose !!!! To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R. IGNORE
To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3
3. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations. 4.Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, under the Circumstances you are in the next option will be Clean install
5. I this does not work it might be your memory --download and burn to cd memtest (http://www.memtest86.com/) and test your memory for errors.

Windows XP installation error


i have had the same problem when the hard drive was about to die or the ram is faulty

take ram out and clean gold edges with rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser,
insert ram, if you have more than one chip try one at a time as one may be failing, ie (a bad spot on the chip and only stops the install when it gets to that location on the ram chip)

when you are running the install ,windows will ask you if you want to use the partitions on the drive
,say no and delete select partition ,this will format the hard drive and set a new one up,if the drive has problems it should show up then.

good luck ,and let me know how you go
